  1. That bald guy is retarded and needs to be retired from talking about bitcoin.
    Stocks are crap. Dollar is backed by nothing how is bitcoin different then cash or stocks? It’s really not. They just don’t won’t People buying into getting rich.
    I am buying bitcoin as much as I can

  2. Everybody talks about money being some kind of cure for the times we are living what if it's just the opposite. Do we need more laws to protect our money or laws to protect ourselves? What if all homeless people were not being criminalized but instead was being protected under the law as through hikers in life. What if you could learn to live out of a backpack with just yourself God and nature in knowing what's real. Learning more about yourself in what you have need of more than what you have want of could be one hell of a teacher (What's wrong with that?). Maybe you like having your life explained in the meaning of alternative facts than with the meaning you can't fool mother nature. Would it not be great if some country could protect your walk with God under the law. They could even call it "inalienable rights". To be able to truly be yourself on the living planet with all the nature thrown in is too beautiful to contemplate. Not in my lifetime but what a dream, no homeless just through hikers in life with nothing more than their wits and needs to survive. When it's all over it's over, who says life ever had to be real in the first place.

    Save-a-life use law not bullets and here's the reason why. Talking from the state of Tennessee this is what you can expect. I have lived in Tennessee for 20 years and I still don't know how Tennesseans thinks how the law is supposed to work so I looked into their music. I looked up on the Internet "the Tennessee song" and what shows up is arrested development. Tennessee is a huge supporter of putting a criminal in the White House. Donald Trump defrauded a University that he created. Travis Tritt is a country music star who wrote "Modern Day Bonnie and Clyde" song which takes place out of a Johnson City truck stop. In Florida they say (show up on vacation leave on probation). In Tennessee, there is no talk just action. The South has risen again be afraid if you're not one of them and of a superior disposition down to your roots! I had my vehicle stolen by a policeman in Johnson City Tennessee. He wrote me a ticket for not using my blinker leaving a parking lot and then impounded my car. He told me if I ever get my car out of the impound yard he would do the same thing again. I let him keep the car! All this because he was trying to get homeless people from smoking in a parking lot where they would go for coffee and doughnuts as guests of the pastor of the church. I asked him what gives him the right should he not talk with the pastor first, so much for my car! I also heard it said from a policeman of Tennessee if you're homeless better out of sight and out of mind. They have made their point I am now afraid of the law in Tennessee. Rarely do I leave my apartment these days, they have impounded me along with my car. I wish them all well, at least they get to go outside when they want to play or fish (I have to do my fishing on a computer). It must have something to do with her Bible belt, when they hit you with their kind of justice they can rip the flesh off your heart. It makes me think I'm more like Jesus when it comes to meaning with the law in Tennessee. Maybe someday Jesus will come back and the law will make sense again… you can only hope.

    PS. I have decided I will go outside and fish again if the law shows up maybe I will get a heart attack and die. It's not much to hope for but if you're going to die might as well do it fishing.

  3. So, this is the video where Kevin says he'll NEVER put 'real' money Dollars into crypto garbage…. Will everyone please do me a favor and up vote this comment in a few years time when it is referenced as proof of Kevin's change of opinion?

  4. Haha! Everyone at this table besides Pomp, especially Kevin hates it because they don't understand anything about it.

    Kevin, the USD is not real money – its currency, and currency and money are not the same thing!

  5. The value as he said is that it's a non-sovereign, digital, borderless currency. Sure it's mostly speculators now, but if any new currency were to organically emerge, it would certainly go through a phase of hobbyist & speculation.

  6. At one point in history, people though the internet, apps, smart phones, electric cars, and autonomy was garbage. The future is bright, don't get left behind, and embrace change, and technology that'll change the world

  7. Great interview POMP!. What Kevin O'leary doesn't understand here is blockchain, he really shouldn't be ignorant and research, why its been the best performing asset in the last decade. Bitcoin has more reasons of intrinsic value than majority of assets. Bitcoin has great low cost and quick Remittance transfers, Highly cryptographically secure asset, High divisibility,Total Transaction transparency, Fixed supply asset and the fact that you don't need a bank to transact with bitcoin which rids you from overdraft fees, monthly fees, withdrawal limits, spending limits, Bank holds, Weekend Pending settlements and best of all, Quantitative easing. This is a Phenomenal asset, the likes we've never seen before, I recommend people take the time to realize how impactful blockchain can and will change the world.

  8. stop the lies, Bitcoin is just manipulated by a few people. Once they took it off Chicago exchange, bitcoin start to rise. They could start to play this game again.

  9. When people talk that negatively about bitcoin at this stage where bitcoin is at 8k …you have to understand that we are still very early. One day anyone who talks negatively is going to be looked at like a loony.
